Same here . It's really nice for Grosjean to see him get the pole !
Also for his wife and kids , after such a hard time..

No wonder he crashed so much in the Haas car . The Haas car is very unpredictable !
On the other hand : I've watched the 30 episodes (3 seasons) of Drive To Survive ..
I mean the driver Kevin Magnussen did an oustanding job at Haas in that crappy car !

If Checo fails at Red Bull , Horner should make that call for Kevin Magnussen ASAP !
Kevin is such a nice guy and his driver performance is really underestimated ...
Hopefully we can see Kevin back in F1 ASAP !

EDIT : Ferrari ?
Well , Ferrari did a big step forwards !
Look where they came from...And look where they run today !

The regulation isn't that if you can pass the static load test then you can use moveable aerodynamic devices.
Same for Ferrari who found a cheat for the fuel flow limit.
Similar rules apply against certain performance enhancing drugs in sport...they are banned, its not that you can take them as long as the you can cheat the test to hide their use.

Speaking of GRO's wife and seeing her on Drive to Survive...She is smoking hot...My kinda woman!!! Almost as hot as Kimi's

You know Ferrari fans. Big step forward is nice but we will never be happy unless competing for championships. We have the right drivers! Now we need the right engineers (Steal more from Germany) and a new LEADER....Osama Binotto is killing me

Your athlete cheating example isn't a relevant comparison. Red Bull passed the test and isn't hiding anything. The wing movement is there for anyone to see.

Thx KbD, fantastic news, Rinus is definitely Dutch. He hails from a town very close to Amsterdam.
His family name is 'van Kalmthout' but he figured that might be too complicated for the US audience. So, Rinus Veekay it is!
And this kid is only 20!

And please Philippe don't start the discussion on Veekay being Belgian!

Yep, they explained all that during the TV coverage. Changing last name was probably a great idea for us dumb Americans

Kid looks fast & doing the Indy 500. Bet GRO's wife put the brakes on the 500 and ovals as he is only doing road courses. Can't blame her or him...TOO DANGEROUS!!!!!!

The regulation is quite literally you can use your wing if it passes the FIA's test. RBs did.

All wings must have some flex or they will snap...I'm no engineer but have people complaining ever flown? If not watch the wings sometime.

Do you think that finding a way to sneak answers into a proctored test is good thinking or cheating?

Do you think that the VW emissions test mode program was cheating?

Seriously. I'm asking you to answer these in light of your view on RBR.

Don't be worried Ed . As I know Rinus is 100% "DUTCH" (your place)
So . I'll stay out of this ...

As for MAX , I'm pretty sure you figured out he's from my place ...

BTW : Congrats for Rinus !!!

That's for sure , but I'm pretty sure Kevin M. performed better in the Haas .

And the Haas with their wheels issue . OMG !!!

Indeed and the amount of permissible flex is strictly defined in the regulations.

Instead this particular cheat involves some kind of mechanism to move or rotate the whole rear wing assembly...in order to ​circumvent the load tests and cheat the moveable bodywork regulations.
The mechanism, be it a deformable structure, spring, joint, bearing, pivot, damper or whatever, only has to have sufficient preload to resist the FIA load test, but anything beyond that breaks the preload and allows the component to move or rotate to reduce drag, which contravenes the regulations.
The FIA are doubling the static load and pull back tests to stop teams cheating the regs...in addition to adding reference markings on the rear wing assembly to measure any movement at high speed.

Really? I'd love to see that regulation...do you have its page number in the 2021 technical regulations pdf available online?

I would add that its not just Red Bull who seem to be cheating but also Alpine.

They found a loophole. Every single team on the grid spends endless resources trying to find loopholes. Double diffusers, DAS, F-duct, etc. This is F1 101. Again, don't hate the player, hate the game.

I read that they do this by manipulating the carbon fiber weave to make the wing very strong when a force is applied at a particular location (where the FIA tests it), but still able to deflect when being pulled down by air passing under the wing
